The 2014 model year is the first major update to the 5th-generation Camaro since its 2009 debut, and while Camaro sales have remained stubbornly strong, new competition from Ford, Chrysler, and upstarts like Hyundai have eaten into market share. Still, the motoring press has a lot to look forward to from the 2014 Camaro, and with the online configurator finally live, we can really sink our teeth into the changes GM has in store.
Additionally, the Chevy SS sedan configurator has also gone online, though it has far fewer options to choose from the the 2014 Camaro. Unfortunately, the Camaro configurator does not include any details, or pricing for that matter, on either the 2014 Camaro Z/28 or ZL1. We guess GM is holding onto those tidbits until closer to the holiday season.
Yet aside from the new front fascia and rear taillights, the 2014 Camaro is still much of the same. Sure, the color palette has changed up, but the menu includes three different shades of red, a real lack of variety. The Chevy SS is also only available in five colors, including a head-scratching shade called “Mystic Green.” We’re sure it looks better in person than on the car.
While the Chevy SS lacks any real option packages, though, the 2014 Camaro offers everything from the 1LE handling package to a variety of racing stripes, dealer-installed wheels and body parts, as well as the awesome-looking RS package. Still, we’re left wondering where GM’s two Camaro heavy hitters sit in relation to all of this. Where oh where art thou, Z/28?
